MSU Museum turns construction work into steam tunnel exhibit
The parking lot in front of the MSU Museum has disappeared. In its place, there are steam shovels, enormous piles of dirt and a deep, deep hole. Workers are in the midst of an ongoing project to maintain the university’s extensive steam tunnel system.It shouldn’t come as a surprise that the folks at the MSU Museum have turned these lemons into lemonade. They’ve turned the fencing around this construction project into a pop-up display where you can learn more about the history of steam tunnels on campus.
Acting Director Lora Helou explained it all to Current State’s Scott Pohl.
